Pricing My Home to Sell Privately


Visitors: 390

How do I sell my home privately and avoid enormous agent commissions? Many people to-day are making the decision to sell their home privately and are reaping the rewards with huge savings. They also now realize that selling their home without an agent/broker was not the daunting task they first believed it would be. By following the correct advice particularly when it comes to pricing the end result was a quick and successful sale.

Here's my motto when it comes to pricing - Don't just price to sell. . . price for PROFIT!

Pricing of a house is probably the most important, yet least considered aspect of selling your home as a for sale by owner - FSBO.

The wrong price will cost you thousands of dollars any way you look at it!

A for sale by owner price that is “too low" will result in a “Net" that is thousands ($1,000's) less than what you could have gotten with a little research.

A price that is “too high" will cause your house to sit on the market for a long time. . . . and possibly never sell!

Not selling means paying thousands more in mortgage payments, taxes, and insurance until you lower the price to what the market would have supported in the first place. . . or hire a realtor to sell it for you and pay an outrageous commission!

To make matters worse, the wrong price causes your house to get “shopworn".

The longer it stays on the market the more you'll be subject to really low-ball offers!

Incorrect pricing is the classic FSBO mistake!

Getting the price right from day one increases your chance of a quick sale dramatically!
